Tasmania - Australia 





 Tasmania is the only island state in Australia positioned at the bottom of the country south of Melbourne. Simply put, Tasmania is a haven for Tourists. Tara & I were able to travel around in a Tasmanian Camper which gave us the added benefit of having our transport, accommodation & cooking all in one. Tasmania is approximately 300km from north to south & east to west so you are going to need some transport if you want to take full advantage of all that the island has to offer. Along our travels we saw an extreme number or bike riders peddling their way around Tasmania, after chatting with them they stated it was such a great place to cycle, as the towns aren't too far from each other. For those who don't want to brave the roads on a bike there are almost more campers then people and every where you go there are caravan parks or hidden little places to park on the side of the road (you didn't hear that part from me). The scenery is incredible and there is immense variety from the east to the west and the north to the south.








Week 18 – Tasmania: Behind the Scenes – Day 1



Launceston & driving to Stanley

We arrived in Launceston, picked up our Tasmania Camper and the adventure began.



We head off & filmed the sunrise over the farmland then drove into town to the Cataract Gorge.

From there we drove towards Stanley.   





The Town Of Stanley


Stanley is a gorgeous little costal town in Tasmania. Tara & I could have filmed for days, with its old buildings, fisherman's wharf & stunning scenery. Unfortunately the rain came and we had to move onto the next place.  











 Behind the Scenes - Day 2

Driving to Dove Lake & Cradle Mountain 

 On day 2 we left from Stanley chased out by the rain and headed south Driving to Dove Lake & Cradle Mountain.




Behind the Scenes, Tasmania - Day 3

Sunrise at Dove Lake/Cradle Mountain

This is a great little insight into our adventure & personalities. 1 of the must see places in Tasmania for Tara was the boat shed at Dave Lake, an amazing place for photography.  




Behind the Scenes - Straughn & Queenstown 





 We traveled through the township of Straughn & Queenstown on the west side of Tasmania. Both destinations are so unique of each other. The drive between the two towns was half the experience.
